Crafty Purple Frog DT Card......

A snowy good morning to all you lovely peeps in Blogland.....yes I say snowy cus its snowing yet again here by the North sea....its like a blizzard!!!
Anyway you havn't come here to hear me prattle on have you? I know why you are here.........
Its Thursday & so that means just 1 thing....its time forrrrrrrrr
This is our last challenge this year.....wow that sounds weird lol. Anyway we thought we would give you a crimbo special for all those who still have last minute makes to do......yesssss me included.....
Christmas Themed Something
Yep as long as its crimbo themed then enter our challenge & dont forget you enter as many times as you wish to......so get all them makes in to us. Whats more there are 6....yes thats right 6 chances of winning prizes.....
......how fab is that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This week we have 2 fab sponsors offering prizes as well as CPF, so I have used products from everyone on my cards......I have made 2 as some of the DT have done so there are a few pics I'm afraid. I will post all links at the bottom of post.
1st Card
Starting with a gorgeous CPF decoupage & Bearly Mine DP's...
This beauty is Cherish Christmas & you can get her here

The card was cut out using the grand nesties in my Calibur....which might I say is FABULOUS, I absolutely love it..it has large suction plate underneath so you can stop it from wandering & the handle is big & chunky which is also fab.....it is however huge lol!!!
I didnt finish these til late-ish last night so pics were took in the light tent, which I'm starting get used to lol.
2nd Card
The next card is a KK image & Bearly Mine DP's....our 2 sponsors this week...

This beauty is 'Mistletoe' which you can get here 
The papers are Bearly Mine which are lush, I have even decorated the inside to match...

I have just added 2 snowflakes & a nestie shape to the top & all I added to the bottom was a gem to the centre of the bow.

She has been coloured with Promarkers & Copics & had glitter added to her fur & blue stickles added to her pom-poms.....I love this colour theme & I think she looks fab in it....also their are a couple of challenges with this colour theme lol.

All edges of paper inside & out have been heat embossed with Snowflake embossing powder.

The mirrored-shiny card was cut out using nesties....cant remember where the card is from as I've had it since I brought my 1st lot crafty stash. The flower underneath the poinsettia was cut out using Magnolia's Doo-Hickey & then was covered in clear embossing powder & zapped with my heat gun.....I love the effect this gives which is gorgeous IRL. The snowflakes were made using my small snowflake punch & added a gem from my stash to the centre.

Papers - Bearly Mine
